Redeeming Father's Day...



I saw this idea in an etsy shop, by way of this girl's blog{she's my newest blog crush, by the way} sidebar. LOVED it!! I told Jenny about the idea and we tossed around ideas. Then she came thru for me and emailed me the pattern that she drew. Jenny's awesome like that!! You may notice four leaves. We are having our fourth little one, Violet, on August 4th, so I found it fitting that she should have her own little leaf.
Father's Day is one holiday I struggle with liking, on a personal level. I do feel, though, that Cory, my children's wonderful dad, redeemes that day. I was looking at cards at the store and just couldn't relate, but I am sooo glad that my children will have wonderful memories with and of their dad. He rocks!! Oh, I also made Cory this awesome cheesecake. It was easy-easier than I thought cheesecake should be, so y'all HAVE to make it!!
Hope y'all have a great Tuesday night!!
